A great time... a.k.a.: enjoying whats in front of you

I have been admittedly crankly lately for numerous different reasons.

I have been unable to realize the small joys in front of my face and have instead been dwelling on the negative. For example: instead of recognizing that my grandparents are some amazing 73+ yr old people that are still capable of standing up for themselves and working like they are 43, I have been dwelling on the fact that they still work 5+ days a week, harder than most people, and are still expected to work another thing that they really don't want to (by no fault of their own, mind you).
What I have been missing out on is something I was reminded of today. I spent a lot of my time today working with my grandma in the kitchen. This was amazing! It took me back to when I was a child. I sure do miss spending that time with my grandma, helping her that way but this time I was doing most of the running up and down the stairs, wrangling kids out of the kitchen, running out to the BBQ because as I stated before she is getting older, but she is still amazing!

My grandparents are absolutely amazing!

  1. They most certainly are. We have to be so thankful for their love and what they have taught us. I appreciate them now more than ever...just like you I guess
